The canvas has been lined. The surface is slightly dirty but the colors are bright and fresh. There is evidence of frame abrasion in places, a small loss to the center left edge and in the lower right corner. UV light reveals strokes of inpainting throughout the sky, to the edges and a few scattered spots of retouching of places elsewhere. The work is in good overall condition. In response to your inquiry, we are pleased to provide you with a general report of the condition of the property described above.
